The BCHL and LNG Canada have teamed up with the Vancouver Canucks Alumni for a Road Show event in Kitimat, this coming weekend.
The Road Show will feature the defending Fred Page Cup Champion Prince George Spruce Kings and their Mainland Division rivals the Langley Rivermen playing a pair of games in the community of Kitimat. The games will be held Saturday, Feb. 15 and Sunday, Feb. 16 at Tamitik Arena.
The Canucks Alumni are also participating, sending two of their most distinguished members to the event, Dave Babych and Jyrki Lumme. Both were an integral part of the Canucks famous 1994 team that went to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Babych and Lumme will be participating in youth hockey clinics on Friday and will be at the Fan Zone on Saturday, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans at the Fan Zone at Tamitik Arena.
The Canucks Alumni is made up of former hockey players, coaches and administrators and has over 100 members and associates in the Greater Vancouver area. The mandate of the alumni association is “to work for the improvement of personal relationships among all members of the hockey fraternity, to provide financial and other forms of assistance to members of the hockey community and their families, when in need, to support charitable causes, primarily youth orientated, and to generally promote the game of ice hockey at all levels”. The alumni interacts with the NHL Canucks in most of the team’s charitable and community fundraisers and operates a schedule of its own benefit hockey games and golf tournaments throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond.
